In case anyone is interested, there's a tiny article in farm show (Vol. 34, No. 6) called "Bark Peeler Makes Log Prep Easy," and it shows a picture of a tool Ralph Thibault made that looks like a big metal grapefruit peeler fused to an axe head. The axe head serves as a handle resting on the log, and then you pull the peeler down the length of the log.
Apparently peeling logs makes them last longer because worms get into the logs within a few months otherwise, given the extra layer.
